A Tale of Orchids

  • 3 Aug - 30 Aug 2020
  • Entrance Gallery, Flower Dome
  • What better way to commemorate Singapore’s National Day than with orchids? Gardens by the Bay has put together a new pocket garden display in Flower Dome featuring orchid hybrids cultivated by the Gardens’ own horticulturists and an array of orchids from local nursery Toh Garden. Adding a special touch to the display is a digital collection of orchid paintings by local artists, presented in collaboration with local arts charity The Very Quiet Studio. Each a unique depiction of Singapore’s national flower Vanda Miss Joaquim (Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim), the paintings were created in appreciation for the hard work by our healthcare professionals in the fight against Covid-19. A common thread running through the display is the theme of resilience. From the hardy nature of orchids to the dedication and strength of our people, A Tale of Orchids celebrates the collective and resilient spirit of Singapore.
  • This display was made possible by Toh Garden's generous sponsorship of these beautiful orchids.
